Area 52 is formed two and half years ago from the ashes of two bands from Gibraltar; ‘Melon Diesel’& ‘Reach’ .Melon Diesel signed to Sony Records Spain,(now Sony BMG Spain) becoming one of the top rock bands in the Spanish Music scene. They supported acts such as R.E.M, Manic Street Preachers, Oasis, Courtney Love’s band Hole, Placebo and many more. Their estimated sales surpassed 200,000 copies. Extracted from their first album in 2001 they reached the top spot in the Spanish charts with the song “Quiero un camino”(Find a way).With album No. 2 they had 3 top 20 hits and with their last album in 2003, they had 2 top 10 hits. Reach on the other hand was signed to RCA Records Spain and released an album which they toured extensively throughout Spain supporting major Spanish acts.

Area 52 have now recorded there 1st album with producer Danilo Ballo, in Turin (Italy) and are looking for labels that best suit their style and vision.
